Let me start out and say that I ADORE my old covers and they will still be available through me if your former collection isn't complete (send me an email if you're interested.) In addition, the hardcovers will remain the same. I love the photos I purchased from Regina Wamba. Her photography blows me away.
So why are new covers a thing? It all comes down to all y'all. Reader tastes change over the years when it comes to visual art. Covers are one of the main ways to market a good book. So it's been almost four years since Rebel's Blade was released. Since then, reader preferences have changed to more model driven art, hence the new look.
I am ASTOUNDED at what Story Wrappers created. She really brought my stories to life and I couldn't be happier.
